Heart, fronted by Ann and Nancy Wilson, has given fans classic, raw, and pure badass rock and roll for more than three decades. As the only sisters in rock who write their own music and play their own instruments, Ann and Nancy have always stood apart. By refusing to let themselves and their music be defined by their gender, and by never allowing their sexuality to overshadow their talent, the Wilson sisters have made their mark, and in the process paved the way for many of today's female artists. Here, they recount a journey that has taken them from a gypsy-like life as the children of a globe-trotting Marine to the frozen back roads of Vancouver, where they got their start as a band, to the pinnacle of success--and sometimes excess. Through it all, the sisters drew from the strength of a family bond that trumps everything else--From publisher description

Though one of the main themes throughout this entire book was the war against the stigmatization and exploitation of women in the rock music industry, I found it disturbing that out of ALL the people they worked with over the years, authors Nancy & Ann Wilson chose to verbally bash two fellow women musicians--Ms, Stevie Nicks and Ms. Courtney Love. It just made me really sad.
